  1. The title sais it all,

    Which is a better psu? Antec Smart power or true power? Power output aside, we'll assume they are both 500Watt.

    both the truepower and smartpower models are good PSUs. but you can't ignore the power output because that is the major difference between the two series (aside from the fan configuration, and the modular cableing of the SP500)

    the truepower models are a bit more powerful. if you compare same wattage models spec-for-spec the TP models have a higher +12v combined max load capacity than the SP models.

    the truepower models also have tighter voltage regulation. the TP models regulate to within +/-3%, and the SP models regulate to within +/-5%

    cheers :wave:

    Personally, I`d go with the Sonata II case with 450Watt Smartpower PSU.

    As far as I`m concerned, Antec psu`s are all very good. I don`t think you`ll have any problems with the above choice.

    Regards Howard :)
